Valleywag, along with other blogs published by Gawker Media, has adopted a new, condensed format, making the page faster to load and headlines easier to scan.
The relentless pace of news has overwhelmed the blog format of old. Interesting news gets buried as new headlines flow onto the page.
If you liked the classic view, you can select "Expanded" in the View menu in the gray bar at the top of the page. There are other tools for sorting items there, too. Oh, and if you don't like change, our apologies — more are on the way as we integrate Valleywag more closely with Gawker.
